Bachelorette Becca and Garrett Address Instagram Controversy

Garrett's Instagram account liked several offensive posts, including posts that mock Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg and the trans community.

Now that the couple is out in the open, Garrett could address the controversy head on, first echoing his first statement that he didn't realize "the effect of a double tap or like on Instagram," and that he didn't mean to offend anyone. 

"When I was liking things, it was going against what she stands for, and that made it really hard on us as a couple, so when we started talking about that, we got through that together, and we're growing, we're progressing, and we're moving forward," Yrigoyen explained. 

Becca admitted that dealing with the social media issue was one of their major struggles as a couple so far, but she felt that she had gotten to see "his heart, his soul" as they got to know each other without social media and technology. 

"The Instagram situation, I don't condone that," she continued. "I know that he stands by his apology and he feels so bad for everyone that he did offend, and he didn't mean it, but I just want to move forward and to learn and to grow, and to continue to educate ourselves, and that's all you can ask for in another person, is that somebody who recognizes if they make a mistake and do something wrong, and want to learn and grow from it, and that's what he's shown me."
